Surprisingly fit Jankovic gets past unfit Venus Williams

I keep waiting for Jelena Jankovic to just stop in her tracks. After playing weeks and weeks of nonstop tennis, usually getting to the semifinals or finals, she should be both mentally and physically shot. But in today's third round at the French Open, it was Venus Williams who looked ready to drop, and Jankovic who looked fresh as can be, hardly breaking a sweat. Williams rallied well enough to take the second set, but the third was a run-over, with Jankovic dragging her tired opponent back and forth and up and down all over the court. Jankovic's net play was superb. She needs to do something about that second serve, though.

Here is Jankovic's interview.
